Nautical print pillow design comes in many different coastal images, such as sand dollars, star fish, seashells, tall ships, sea urchin, beach scenes, corals, anchors, you name it, if it’s in or on the ocean you can get it in print.  Nautical colors range from soft pastels, such as marine colors like blues, aqua, and teal, to bold blues, coral and browns.  But, the color white is usually the dominant color used in the background of most nautical themes.  Nautical themed throw pillows can be easily found in most traditional and online stores, it is a very popular theme for decorating.  Decorating in a nautical theme can be awesome, but don’t over-do-it.

Decorative Animal Print Pillows

Animal print popularity

Decorative animal print pillows are but one of the elements that stemmed from a style that has been around for a long time.  Animal prints have long been a popular style for many reasons.  Considered an exotic print, and generally an expensive item, animal prints were considered to be a symbol of wealth and status.  As far back as I can remember, but particularly during the 1960s, animal prints have been a very popular print for decorating.  Besides being used on clothing and art, animal prints were very popular when used as a decorative accent, to decorate living areas and bedrooms.  Other common uses for animal prints are on, rugs, wallpaper, or painted surfaces.  Animal prints are also used in designs for safety gears such as helmets, race cars, building exteriors, airplanes, and signage.

 

The many uses of animal prints

The most popular animal print is Leopard, but there are many other prints that are just as popular, such as Cheetah, Zebra, Tiger, Giraffe, Striped and spotted Hyena, Monkey, and African Wild Dog.  There are many products that use animal prints, like handbags, footwear, jewelry, and textiles.  Room decoration was also a popular use for animal prints, couches, curtains, bed spreads, and decorative animal print pillows were among some of the decorative features used.  In earlier times the coat of animals were actually used for clothing, pillows, couches, and chairs, but today we often use fake fur.  It is much easier to make animal print products today than it was years ago.  Animal prints are like neutrals, because they have earth tones such as brown, beige, and black, a decorative animal print pillow can be used all year round.  I have even seen animal prints in color, such as pink, gold, yellow and purple background, weird, but creative right!

Art Deco Throw Pillows

The Style

Art deco styling is very common in interior design, and is most commonly used by incorporating art deco throw pillows.  In interior decorating if you mentioned modern technology with smooth lines, geometric shapes, streamed lined forms and bright colors you’d be talking about art deco.  It was looked upon as a design style that was elegant, glamorous, and functional.  It is a mixture of several major art styles from the early twentieth century, such as Aztec, Egyptian, futurism, and cubism to name a few.  Art deco style elements were purely decorative.

Initially art deco was considered a luxury style that was incorporated into furniture, textiles,  and interior design, among other architectural designs.  These were elements that could easily be incorporated into designing an art deco throw pillow.  Because of its modern style art deco designs was especially suitable for interiors.  Some design elements from the era was stainless steel, aluminum, plastics, lacquer, and inlaid wood.  Also introduced was shark-skin and zebra-skin.

 

A Style that spanned the ages

Many countries around the world adopted the art deco style. The fact, that architects and designers from countries like the United Kingdom, Spain, and Cuba just to name a few adopted this style says a lot.  The movement was very popular during the roaring 20s, the 1930s, and just before World War II.  Its popularity died out for a while during the 1930s and 1940s, and was revived again in the 1960s and 1980s.  Today, you can see the art in many decorative designs in our homes, furniture, and such items as, an art deco throw pillow.

Today, we can add throw pillows that represent the art deco style and design to our sofa, chairs and bed.  Bringing in those smooth lines, geometric shapes, streamed lined forms, and bright colors that will transport us back to the era where luxury, elegance, and glamour were the opulence of society.

Around the world

While researching folk art throw pillows online, I came across so many different styles of pillows.  So, I thought I would extend my previous article on folk art throw pillows to include ethnic style, folk art throw pillows.  As mentioned in the previous article all cultures have their own type of folk art designs, however, I’ve notice that they all have that basic decorative design element of bright bold colors. Whether the throw pillows were embroidered or painted they all were bold and bright.

I have an interested in most anything ethnic, (as probably most of us do) because my family background is ethnic.  So, if you have an interest in ethnic style folk art throw pillows, there are many available online and in most traditional stores that carry throw pillows.  I’ve captured some images to show, but I’ve also included an image from Zazzle, they also carry ethnic style, folk art throw pillows you can connect with them by clicking on the pillow below.

Folk Art Throw Pillows

The culture of folk art

Zazzle.com
Zazzle.com

When I think of folk art, I think of home, and going to the art festival, where there were all kinds of folks with products that represented their culture. Whether, it’s the North American culture, or any other culture in the seven continents, that help make up who you are. Often times you can find products like a quilted folk art throw pillow, a landscape of someone’s barn on the farm, farm animals such as roosters, or even an American flag with baseballs or apple pie.  All these products are part of someone’s culture that has been painted, sewn, embroidered, sculpted and even made from wood by untrained often anonymous artists.  These products were created by artist whose sole intentions is to keep their culture alive and in the minds of the community.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

The future of folk art

Zazzle.com
Zazzle.com

Most folk art normally has decorative designs, bright bold colors, a flattened perspective, and strong forms in simple arrangements according to dictionary reference.com.  Folk art throw pillows and other products created by folk art artist are becoming a lost art form.  Because in today’s society, and in our advance technology age, creativity is more on a computer screen than on the natural ways of creating art.  Recently while on the internet I found some folk art throw pillows.  I was surprise to find folk art products available in online or traditional stores.

 

Finding folk art memories

Every culture has its own style of folk art, but all folk art tells a story of the culture and its people.  So, when decorating your room with a folk art throw pillow, check into your heritage, culture and family.  I can bet your great grandparents, or your grandparent’s has a piece of folk art item stored away as a keepsake.  That piece of folk art reminds them of where they started, or where they’ve been.  If you’d like to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art that represent your culture, start with your older family members.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed the content of this post, and will try a folk art throw pillow in your home décor.  If you do, leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you about your experience.

Creating a throw pillow online

Online research

When researching to review the process of creating a throw pillow online, I looked at several online stores that offered the opportunity to create your own personalize throw pillow.  While all the online stores offered a similar package on creating your personalize throw pillow, I took a look at zazzle packages.  I chose zazzle because besides being able to personalize a throw pillow, the company offered an extensive array of other products that could be personalized to suite your own style.

 

Choosing a template

This online company offers you a blank pillow template to choose from which includes pillows in several shapes and sizes. They offered square pillows in sizes 16”, 18”, 20”, 22” and 26”, priced from $29.95-$49.95.  Round pillows priced from $28.95-$33.95, and lumbar (rectangular) pillows priced from $34.95-$39.95. There were a few other pillows included in the template, such as body pillows priced from $79.95-$90.90, and accent pillows priced from $32.95.

 

Your personalized design

After choosing a pillow template in the size and shape you wish, you are then prompted to choose a layout.  Drag and drop your image and begin to personalize your throw pillow.  When creating a throw pillow online you are giving the option of downloading your own personal family pictures, your unique artwork, any text of your choice, and company logos.  But if you don’t have any of these items of your own in mind, Zazzle also offers a number of designs and pictures that you can use.

 

Company guarantees

Zazzle guarantees that they will process your order within a 24 hour time period. They will provide you a quality product, and if you’re not completely satisfied, there return policy is to replace or refund your product within 30 days of receipt.  Shipping and handling charges applies, and you will receive your product within 5-7 working days. They have a 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed.

 

In conclusion

In reviewing this company’s creating products, I felt confident that I would be able to create and personalized a throw pillow of my choice successfully using my own imagery or even theirs.  The one drawback that was mentioned by a customer’s testimonial was that “some of the design functions could be made more user-friendly”.  Overall I would say that using zazzle for creating a throw pillow online is a great choice.  This company offers you a choice of templates, the ability to upload your designs, artwork, photos, logos, and text to customize your product as you please, and the opportunity to use their designs if you don’t have your own.  So, you see it isn’t too difficult to be able to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art on a throw pillow.  Try it online at zazzle.com.

See you soon!
